WWASH = While We're All Still Here

The first-ever WWASH get-together is next Monday — the winter solstice — December 21, and it's nothing more (and nothing less) than a chance to say hi to friends, eat some eats, and drink some drinks.

But why?

Because it's much easier to say hi to people when they're here as opposed to when they're not.

Daddy? where does polysorbate 60 come from?

I just finished this book and I have to tell you I am a little bit freaked out. But not necessarily by the things I thought I would be freaked out by. Well,,, I mean I already knew that the processes used for Bleached Flour were not good and that Natural and Artificial Flavors are really neither. But Steve Ettlinger was able to scare the bejeezes out of me regarding so many other f'ed up things about food and its current processes. Via his quest to identify the sources for the Twinkie's long list of ingredients. How would I have known that the waste incurred to make Vitamins in the pill form is so environmentally unfriendly no one does it outside of China anymore. Or that much of what we eat starts out either as corn or a petrochemical. Well, I think we all knew about corn. All that said, I am still going to make good on my personal reward for completing this book by actually having one of the 500 million Twinkies sold this year. Now that I'm fully aware of all the shit that's in it, I might even enjoy it.

Redundant Comments

Carrie Browstein's NPR Blog is consistantly ripping, but her post today about Fugazi and Chunklet and James Burns' mp3 compilation of their stage banter is one of those things that makes you want to hug the internet and give it a big kiss on the lips of its mouth.

Happy Danksgiving

"Found a good image that was shot YEARS ago of an alien Thanksgiving celebration at Area 54. Nothing out of the ordinary: human sacrifice, nude aliens, giblets, gravy ... business as per usual."

Promo Film For The 1985 Honda VFR750R

"That jewel-like engine was a marvel though; different countries were given different states of tune, but peak power was up to 112 or 118 bhp depending on whom you ask. All RC30s were hand-built in the Honda Racing Corporation facility rather than on the regular production lines, and Honda created a promotional film to showcase its meticulous engineering."

one more quarter

When I was in high school I pumped countless quarters into this machine.  That damn Rudy was always taunting me.  I bumped into a very entertaining article that shed some light on the economics of pinball machines, and the evolution of the devices used to entice you to put one more quarter in.  If you were ever a pinball guy, it'll be worth the click.
